The design of a hybrid electric power generation system utilizing both wind and solar energy for remote area is today’s need. The system has two basic components – one for generation of electricity through Solar Energy and another one for generation from Wind Energy. Even in the case of absence of either of the two sources, the other remaining source could be used to supplement the absence of the former. The power from wind current can be extracted using a vertical axis turbine. Vertical axis turbine is capable of extracting power form wind regardless of the direction of flow. The solar PV cells absorb the radiation of sun and converting it into the electrical power. The combination of this hybrid system will be beneficial in future aspects. The entire hybrid system is described given along with comprehensive simulation results that discover the feasibility of the system.
